Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

86% efficiency from turbid mash?
Wow!

Did my first turbid mash yesterday for a straight lambic. Everything I read told me to expect 30-35% efficiency so I planned my 5-gal recipe accordingly - and ended up with over 6.5 gallons of 1.055 wort!

In addition to this, I wish someone told me how easily that first pull-off of starcy liquid scorches. I'll be tasting that one in a few years...

My turbid mash efficiencies are running 90-95%. They also produce beers with dense heads.

Re: 86% efficiency from turbid mash?
Somewhere I was searching and I found a link to someone who adapted the Cantillon schedule to homebrew volumes. I guess I read it wrong or something. Woohoo, a whole extra gallon of lambic!

And I gotta say, despite the raw wheat, this was probably my fastest sparge ever. I couldn't believe it.
